Having read others reviews we booked a sunset game drive, guide was informative and friendly - most elephant and buffalo I've ever seen. Accommodation is clean, spacious and well equipped. Staff very helpful and friendly Restaurant newly built after flood and has great view of river Very good camp

This is our favourite rest camp. I know some people prefer the lush south, but we so enjoy the ambience of Shingwedzi, the squirrels playing, the large river bed to the side of the camp. It was clean, the staff were friendly, the evening stars were magical. And in the height of summer, the aircon was invaluable! We will be... More

We had a BD3 bungalow (strangely they don't have bungalows for 2). They are very roomy. Have an outside kitchen with all utensils, toaster, water cookcer and of... More

We camped here for 7 nights, and will surely be back! I don't think I have ever been to a resort where the staff have been friendlier and more helpful. Everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. All facilities were in top form, and the swimming pool was awesome for the extreme heat. Thank you so much to... More

What a lovely camp in the northern part of the Kruger with well equipped and modern chalets that are self catering units with a braai area. The camp is quite large and has a pool area, restaurant and shop. The restaurant has great view over the Shingwedzi river and provides excellent meals. The shop is big and well stocked. So,... More

One of the older camps built in a group of circles. Some of it has been rebuilt following recent floods. We had an older, traditional cottage but it was clean, everything worked, and the linen was fresh and crisp. The bird life was incredible here; all the local birds just turned up and waited around, they are used to being... More

Shingwedzi is a wonderful camp - the setting is stunning and the drives around the camp are pretty. The camp staff are super friendly and make you feel right at home. We did a bush walk and had a wonderful time.

Location on riverbed similar to many other camps but without the crowds. 3bed chalets awesome with children. 2 camp gates increase your early morning drive options. A large part of the camp is newly built since the January 2013 flood but retained the traditional feel of a Kruger camp. Best swimming pool! Too dry for irrigation here so no lawn... More
